I thank first all the team members working on the plugin “buildship”, and I have a question for you .
When I work offline, this means with no network access to any external dependencies repository (for ex. no access to the internet), buildship is not able to initialize the projects (in eclipse) very well. Although the dependencies are listed correctly, the classes coming from external jars are not recognized by eclipse, which implies red markers (error) at many places in the eclipse project.
I think, it would be nice to be able to work offline properly, if the dependencies had been downloaded before at a time where the access to the repositories was possible. This would follow the thinking behind the gradle own “offline” mode (it is possible to run gradle in offline mode).
What do you think about it?
